About this album

Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is the third album by American alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins, released on October 24, 1995 on Virgin Records. Produced by Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, Flood and Alan Moulder, the 28-track album was released as a two-disc CD and triple LP. Flood and Moulder had previously worked with Nine Inch Nails to produce 1994’s The Downward Spiral.

Led by the single “Bullet with Butterfly Wings”, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard charts, a first for the group. The album spawned four more singles over the course of 1996 and has been certified nine times platinum.

Praised by critics for its ambition and scope, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness earned the band seven Grammy Award nominations in 1997. The album was voted the 29th greatest album of all time in 1998 by Q magazine readers. In 2003, the album was ranked number 487 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

    I remeber taking the bus home after buying mellon collie the day it was released, reading the booklet I was pissed of that i couldn't afford a portable cdplayer and had to wait until I got home... f**k, I'm getting old....

    MCIS is the best album ever made....28 songs that are almost all amazing (maybe 3-4 that I don't really care that much about). Also, the first album I actually bought with my own money way back when I was a kid. ZimZum86, I completely disagree with your opinion (as you predicted would probably happen)...some of the best songs are near the end of this disc (We Only Come Out at Night, Beautiful, By Starlight, and Farewell and Goodnight are all very good songs to me...even Lily and X.Y.U. grow on you after a bit). But, my absolute favourite song has to be Tonight, Tonight. Best song on this disc would be Thirty-Three for me (my 2nd favourite song by the Pumpkins and anyone else). And, like a couple others have said, We Only Come Out at Night is such an awesome song :D Gotta love the Pumpkins and their extremely diverse musical catalogue!

    "Farewell and Goodnight" always makes me a little teary

    I think the pace from 1979 to Tales of a Scorched Earth is a total transition. That's why I listen to Mellon Collie as it appears on the vinyl. It all grouped together a lot better.

    to be honest 'X.Y.U.' and 'tales of a scorched earth' are the only 2 songs I really don't like from the whole Mellon Collie record, really...

    I think Thru the Eyes of Ruby is their best song ever.

    Bodies has to be the best song off of disc 2, together with 1979 which is just essential.
